Forum: movies Subject: when will mkv get the respect from archive.org it deserves?

check out:
http://www.archive.org/help/derivatives.php

we derive from mkv and auto-classify them as format "Matroska"

we're not using them as the container for our "Ogg Theora" format
derivative videos, but that's due to preference from the FOSS
community for ogg containers vs. mkv

you wound up committing edits while the derive was running,
which removed all the derivatives (it makes the item dir be exactly like how you commit)

i am (re)deriving the item now..
